Linux News Today: Logic Supply to Unveil Ultra-Compact Mini-PC Powered by Ubuntu Linux and Windows
Logic Supply has informed Softpedia about the upcoming availability of a new member of the ever-growing family of the company’s industrial PCs, the CL100, which is set to be unveiled during the Digital Signage Expo 2016.
Delivered in a new, small form factor, the CL100 industrial computer is fanless and ventless, just like most of the industrial PCs manufactured by Logic Supply, thus preventing ingress from various airborne debris like dust. It contains no moving parts, and it is mostly targeted at digital signage applications, offering users the possibility of installing either the popular Ubuntu Linux or Microsoft Windows operating systems.
Logic Supply will be present at the upcoming Digital Signage Expo 2016 event, world’s largest trade show for digital displays, which takes place next week between March 15-18, 2016, in Atlanta, Georgia, United States, to showcase its latest hardware, including CL100, which the company hopes to find a home in a wide range of applications outside digital signage. The company currently promotes the device as a 4K media player.
“We work with a wide array of digital signage clients who are constantly sharing feedback about the type of hardware they need to best deliver their message,” said Justin Ballard, Solution Specialist at Logic Supply. “In developing the CL100 we wanted to create a device that could be installed virtually anywhere and provide reliable content delivery.”
